The Journey to Portraits with Elizabeth Barden
Elizabeth Barden was born in Brisbane. In 1990, she moved to Cairns. She held solo exhibitions in 1999 and 2003 at Cairns Regional Gallery. In 2002, she became the first female artist from North Queensland to be represented in the collection of the National Portrait Gallery, Canberra. Barden has been a finalist in the Portia Geach Memorial Award six times, the Shirley Hannan Prize twice, and winner of People’s Choice in the Shirley Hannan Prize (2004). Her works are held in public and private collections in Australia, UK and USA.
In this segment, Elizabeth will speak a little about her artist journey. “I look forward to sharing with you what drew me to portraiture, what I hope to achieve when I paint someone, the experience of living in Cairns, transporting from Cairns – and the tyranny of distance…”
